2016 was the year that the world got a taste of the mercenary with a mouth called Deadpool. The hero has been known to give a unique perspective about the world and why not? From his origins in the comics to his journey into the big screen, Deadpool has had quite the roller-coaster ride that no other hero may have survived.
And since this year was the year that Deadpool tasted the sweet sweet taste of success with his first solo film, it’s not surprising to hear that the hero did an exclusive interview with Empire Magazine. Of course, Wade Wilson got a little help from actor Ryan Reynolds to get his answers across but the hero was very vocal about what he liked this year and what we should expect from the upcoming sequel. Here are the highlights:
How did you celebrate the success of your movie?
I had the cast of Sesame Street fired.
What’s the most extravagant thing you’ve bought with all that cash?
It’s a Fox film. I was paid in cocaine.
Who’s your unlikeliest celebrity fan?
(**A bit of humour for comic fans, as both Deadpool and Deatstroke are said to be the same person but for rival comic publishing houses. Deathstroke is a mercenary killer for DC comics.)
What was your favorite movie of 2016? (Not your own.)
Hunt For The Wilderpeople. (Serious answer.)
(**Hunt For The Wilderpeople was directed by Taika Waititi, who is also directing a little movie for MCU called Thor: Ragnarok)
What can we expect from the sequel?
T.J. Miller snorting live mice off a mirror in the bathroom at the Minneapolis airport. Followed by a festival of handjobs. (Serious answer.)
Are you going to upgrade your suit?
We’re adding tasteful underwear, but the point is, I’m sorry for that thing I said about burning stuff and your families. I don’t know where rage like that comes from.
